Which past SNL host would top your holiday party guest list?
Thompson: “Whoever would come! Will Ferrell would be incredible.”
Strong: “Kristen Wiig. She’s always fun.”
Where do you stand on Christmas sweaters? Thompson: “I don’t find them ugly. I think they’re awesome and festive.”
Strong: “I like one-of-a-kind Christmas sweaters with dogs on them. They’re silly and comfortable.”
Who has been your all-time favorite character to play?
Thompson: “It’s kind of impossible to pick one. The original intention is to go get a laugh however you do it. Life keeps giving us characters. Like the recent sketch where I played O.J. [Simpson] going on a date, talking to the ladies—it was too crazy to think about O.J. on a date.”
Strong: “I love over-the-top women, glamour women who are sort of unaware and just living life, and I love Cathy Anne. Even in my head she’s enjoying life!”
